0.5 unit on Indianapolis -6 (-110) (risk 0.5 to return 0.95) RESULT: LOSS
The Jets got a big win at home last week for their new coach, but now they head out on the road against a team with something to prove. Let's face it - this Jets offense is still a major weak spot with newcomer QB Ryan Fitzpatrick taking snaps. They beat a bad Cleveland team in week one, and the challenge here is much stiffer. There's a big difference between Josh McCown + Johnny Manziel and Andrew Luck. The Colts looked lost last week at Buffalo, but that was on the road. This is still a very talented all-around team with one of the best offenses in the NFL behind Luck (40 TDs, 16 INTs in 2014), TE Coby Fleener, and newcomers WR Andre Johnson and Frank Gore. They should move the football and score a lot of points in this game. They are also a cover-machine, on a 22-13-1 ATS run. Indy is a terrific bounce back team, 16-4-1 ATS after a spread loss and 18-3 ATS after a defeat. The Colts had three blowout losses last season and followed them the next week with wins and covers by scores of 40-24, 23-3 and 27-10. In addition, they are built for this indoor, home field where they are on a 21-6-1 ATS run, as well as 18-7-1 ATS against the AFC. Lay the points on the Colts.
